Northgate appointed ICT Supply Chain Partner for Leicester by Miller Consortium Wednesday 4 July 2007 PDF Print Northgate Information Solutions is delighted to announce its appointment by the Miller Consortium, preferred bidder on the Leicester Building Schools for the Future (BSF) project, as its Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Supply Chain Partner. The project will entail a total of 16 secondary schools being entirely rebuilt or refurbished over the next few years, with the first 4 schools scheduled to be ready in 2009. The ICT service given to the schools as part of the project will last for 5 years initially and carries an approximate value of £27 million. The appointment comes in the wake of Northgate's contract win last July to supply ICT services to Bristol City Council, one of the first contracts to be awarded under the Government's BSF programme. The contract, which will ultimately deliver state of the art managed learning services to 6,500 children in the city, is worth around £9 million over the initial 5 year term. - ENDS - For further information: Fellows’ Associates Kathy Sutton 020 7849 3403; 07966 890401; firstname.lastname@example.org Naomi Stevenson 020 7849 3508; 07966 890403; email@example.com Notes to editors: 1) Northgate Information Solutions is a leading provider of ICT and managed services solutions and software to the public services, utilities markets and corporate markets.
